    Abstract

    The unobtrusive methods to monitor and track people behaviour are getting more common. At the same time novel lighting control and the LED technologies allow dynamic real-time controlling of the illumination systems. This progress will support the development of implicit interaction between humans and lighting systems. In this paper, we describe the results of our study on how to create a situation-aware real-time light control system that adapts automatically to person behaviour in ambient space. In future this approach could be used e.g. for guiding visitors in public places or promoting new products. We have implemented a proof-of-concept application - a Treasure Hunt game - by using a depth sensor based people tracking service, wirelessly controlled RGB LEDs and a light controlling unit where the LED bulbs change their colour according to person position and movement in a room.
